ThreeDFormat.RotationY Property (Publisher)

Returns or sets the rotation of the extruded shape around the y-axis, in degrees. Can be a value from - 90 through 90. A positive value indicates rotation to the left; a negative value indicates rotation to the right. Read/write Single.

Syntax

expression. RotationY

expression A variable that represents a ThreeDFormat object.

Return value

Single

Remarks

To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the x-axis, use the RotationX property of the ThreeDFormat object. To set the rotation of the extruded shape around the z-axis, use the Rotation property of the Shape object. To change the direction of the extrusion's sweep path without rotating the front face of the extrusion, use the SetExtrusionDirection method.

Example

This example adds three identical extruded ovals to the active document and sets their rotation around the y-axis to - 30, 0, and 30 degrees, respectively.

Sub SetRotationY() 
 With ActiveDocument.Pages(1).Shapes 
 With .AddShape(Type:=msoShapeOval, Left:=30, _ 
 Top:=120, Width:=50, Height:=25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationY = -30 
 End With 
 With .AddShape(Type:=msoShapeOval, Left:=90, _ 
 Top:=120, Width:=50, Height:=25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationY = 0 
 End With 
 With .AddShape(Type:=msoShapeOval, Left:=150, _ 
 Top:=120, Width:=50, Height:=25).ThreeD 
 .Visible = True 
 .RotationY = 30 
 End With 
 End With 
End Sub
